Vacation Bible School made a thrilling comeback at CCUM in 2022! Through the story of Jonah, the youth volunteers helped the kids understand how to manage their feelings. Add to that music, movement, snack-tivities and youth socials, we can't wait until next year!
Building caring communities online has been a surprising and rewarding experience for Ginny and Lisa. Through our mirror church and our Pieta circles, friendships are being formed with folks around the country.
The Bridge Communities at Christ Church are a place where people are loved and accepted and can explore their faith in a safe and supportive way. They are more than community. They are family.
The Christ Church United Methodist Christmas Concert tradition reaches year 33 this season with LOVE INCARNATE, LOVE DIVINE.

Eternal God, teach us first to treasure you
above all things. In this season of fasting and prayer,
bring to our awareness those who hunger and thirst
for righteousness, companionship and belonging.
May our time apart from the table cultivate
a willingness and urgency to bring others to it.
Lord Jesus, we believe we are called together
into a work of which we cannot yet know the fullness.
We feel the weight of the waiting, as we
practice everyday disciplines of prayer and fasting.
And yet, even through such ordinary means,
you form us in your image by your extraordinary grace.
Holy Spirit, we prepare our hearts to encounter you
where mundane moments become holy moments.
Where practical labors become sacred ones.
In our daily, small, repetitive tasks
may we exist only to spend ourselves for love
after the example of Christ, our Savior.
In your hands, let that increasing devotion
be demonstrated in abundant giving, that we might
live generously and graciously toward others,
the way you, O God, live toward us.
May the measured rhythms in which we move,
and the gifts we share in this harvest season,
accrue like the clues of a treasure map,
revealing where the people of Christ Church
have hidden both our hearts and our hope.
